Symptoms & Diagnosis
In the same way that a natural tooth is composed of a root and a crown, an implant is made of a titanium post (root) and an artificial abutment and crown. Because of their similar structure, dental implants are able to replicate the appearance and function of natural teeth. Implants have many advantages:
- Replace missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
- Resolve bite problems caused by teeth shifting
- Restore chewing, speech and digestion
- Secure dentures, making them more comfortable
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Many doctors and patients choose Implants over traditional bridge work because implants do not require the surrounding teeth to be used as anchors.
